EuZicAsa Thursday Evening At the Concert – Great Performances: Schubert Quintet A major The Trout , Barenboim, Perlman, Zukerman, Jacqueline du Pre and Mehta

Third movement: 18:27
Fourth movement: 23:17

From Wikipedia: The Trout Quintet is the popular name for the Piano Quintet in A major by Franz Schubert. In Otto Erich Deutsch‘s catalogue of Schubert’s works, it is D. 667. The work was composed in 1819,[1] when Schubert was only 22 years old; it was not published, however, until 1829, a year after his death.[2]

Rather than the usual piano quintet lineup of piano and string quartet, Schubert’s piece is written for piano, violinviolacello and double bass. The composerJohann Nepomuk Hummel had rearranged his own Septet for the same instrumentation,[3] and the Trout was actually written for a group of musicians coming together to play Hummel’s work.>>>>>>>>>>more HERE

From Wikipedia: Jacqueline Mary du PréOBE (26 January 1945 – 19 October 1987) was a British cellist. She is particularly associated with Elgar‘s Cello Concerto in E Minor, her interpretation of which has been described as “definitive” and “legendary.”[1] Her career was cut short by multiple sclerosis, which forced her to stop performing at age 28, and led to her premature death. Posthumously, she was the subject of a film Hilary and Jackie (based on her siblings’ memoir, A Genius in the Family) that was factually controversial and criticized for sensationalising her private life.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>more HERE

Snips with a view:

Thank you friends for the blessing of feedback_ It makes all the difference in the world!

Thank you friends for the blessing of feedback_ It makes all the difference in the world! (click to enlarge)

Thank you friends for the blessing of feedback, through “likes, Comments, personal experiences, reblogging and even rating”:
It makes all the difference in the world to know that people aren’t just interested  and liking, but also what it is that they like and, especially what they thought are.

That’s active blogging I think, and it makes all the difference at least for me it does….

Which brings me to a wow I make: I promise to follow your example!

I am thankful to all the more than 409 followers, Even if I did not see many of them in a while: I figure they may find themselves in a life bottleneck, somewhere in a freeway, for days, etc, and I understand that from my personal experience few month back!

I did not realise, but subconsciously I was experimenting with different media of communication, even tried to recite some of my mostly raw thoughts on soundcloud, but it is all to find out more, on my own, about the things that attract us to this information age media of interaction, that can be as involved, and involving as one chooses (before getting hooked on, that is…) THe same goes for the followers from 174 countries from around the globe (with few unwanted follows, fro which I will not retreat into private blogging, a oxymoronic stunt, and perpetrated by WordPress)….The idea was to see where people have more direct access to the internet, and FlagCounter di d a great job (i wish I knew about them from the start), while ClusterMaps cut my reporting in the middle, for no reason (so choose Flag Counter, which gives you both the vies by country, as well as the number of access)

All these service at no expense, except for having to upgrade my space, to allow for more media to by uploaded to WordPress(not inexpensive either) (lesson learned: try and diversify your media outlets, with free spaces, SoudCloud, Pinterest, YouTube,  Twitter, Facebook, and so many other.

I always wanted to have gateways to services I consider graceful, informative, educational , and especially open source, and free of membership dues, or even log on:

It is the reason I created text widgets, on the sidebar  for everybody’s access, and am pleased to see that others are fond of some of them too (took me a while to understand ..How easy it was to do that once one follows directions, but it’s been a while for me to do that, and this blog is my first and only experiment in blogging (I literally did not have an any idea about any of the concepts, html, etc., before the first day I decided to blog)

Yes: I am A Blogger, thanks to you, and the interest you have constantly shown!

There are many other friends who like my posts, and who honored me with AWARDS  for which, and to whom I am greatly indebted and thankful! 

If you decide to have your blog archived (it probably is) access and follow the WayBack Machine (again, another great widget you can find on the sidebar!

Again and again:

Thank you all!

Twitter vs. WordPress.com Settings_ choice forbidden on WordPress.com

Please forgive the few shortcomings, I did not make a script for this video, but I needed to publish this for its very important issues, governing individual freedom of choice, including freedom of association corollary to which, equally or even more important is the freedom of not being associated with, I call that Freedom of disassociation, still a personal choice!
I love blogging at WordPress and hope to be Allowed to do so, regardless of my personal views!

I hope you enjoy the video!


Twitter vs. WordPress.com Settings_ choice forbidden on WordPress.com: The Saga Continues)

Sorry for the poor quality (out of focus) of the video: what I have on my screen, looks great, but once uploaded, it became poor quality (could be a resolution setting? I don’t know!) but upon trying to re- upload, I was rejected for duplication) Does anyone know how can one delete his own video from YouTube? Then I would be able to upload again!

IN THE SPOTLIGHT: an update to “Create blocking Settings (like twitter) to avoid embarrassing pleading comments and give a choice of association to webmasters administrators and in good faith followers!”

WordPress.com Forums » Staff Answers

Join, what I consider now to be a debate, regarding your right to choose, and there is a problem with the status quo!

DO you deserve lesser rights at WORDPRESS.COM,  than those made available to you, without you having to ask, at your account at Twitter?

So far the votes and comments clearly recognize that there is a easy to address setting issue, and it all up to wordpress.com to address it!


Create blocking Settings (like twitter) to avoid embarrassing pleading comments

  1. I have already formulated correspondence, regarding the settings that do not allow an site administrator to choose (by blocking or allowing the another website to follow> It is imperative that you, since you don’t seem to take responsibility (like Twitter does) to address my concern (is it only me? I think that in the past you allowed us to moderate, not only comments, but follows) from commercialism trivialization, profanity, mature content!
    What are you waiting for?

    Read this:

    And block this site from fouling my site, with his inappropriate attitude.
    I feel as if I’m talking to the Big wall of China, event the wall of lament answers better than you folks!

  2. You can block any commenters via the Blacklist at Settings -> Discussion in your blog’s Dashboard.



  3. Your comment, doe not address the issue at hand: this is not about having comments blocked, barred, or in other way moderated, by me.
    this is about me being able to block websites for following me, and becoming an embarrassment, harassment and exposure to unwanted language, and behavior, for wish, I am responsible, without being able to do anything about, and loose, possibly membership of my followers
    You really cannot tell me that you fail to understand what the problem is? if so, read my post again, and again until such time you do understand! Make me Happy Happiness Engineer Hey, know what: Make everybody happy, do the right thing here!

  4. We do not provide a way to block Followers at WordPress.com besides just making your blog Private.

    Please note that Followers only interact with you as far as you let them. You will receive notification of the new follower, but that’s really the only thing outside of your control. You don’t have to follow them back or participate on their blog. And, if they comment on your blog, you can simply blacklist them.
